My preferred Nikon D300 camera settings

First published on: Tuesday, 28 October 2008

These are the camera settings I use for day-to-day shooting with the Nikon D300.

Please realize that settings essentially tailor the camera to produce output that you prefer, so my settings won’t necessarily work for you.

Picture Control

I use the Vivid Picture Control, modified as follows:

  • Sharpening: Auto
  • Contrast: Auto
  • Brightness: Negative (-)
  • Saturation: Auto
